The crisis of drinking water in Jharkhand’s capital Ranchi is continuously deepening. Water supply is not available in many areas for three to four days. On the demand of regular water supply, people living near main road blocked the Ratan Talkies Chowk. People have sat on the road with water utensils.
The police of Hindpiri police station have reached to end the jam. The police tried a lot to convince people, but people did not believe. After this the police started to divert traffic from Surjana Chowk to Kantatoli. There is a long jam on the road leading to Sujata Chowk from Main Road.
It would be relevant to mention here that Ranchi’s Mayor Asha Lakra, after winning the election, declared her priority to ensure drinking water supply in every household. She said that this time people will not have to face water crisis like every year in the summer. In areas where pipelines have not been laid, the Municipal Corporation will ensure supply of drinking water.
